Unleashed

Tarte Unleashed Chrome Paint Shadow Pot ($22.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a light-medium purple with neutral undertones and a metallic sheen. It had rich pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly on my lid by pressing into place. The pot arrived with more of a loose pigment consistency, though there was a plastic stopper included outside of the pot, which could be used to press it into place–they used to include the stopper inside, which helped keep the actual product loosely-pressed. Nevertheless, the consistency was soft, finely-milled, and blendable. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before creasing slightly.

Formula Overview

$22.00/0.11 oz. - $200.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "rich, vibrant" color that comes in "loose pigment" form and will "melt instantly" and "stay put for hours" on the eyes. They feel like a heavier, creamier loosely-packed eyeshadow, which I think is illustrated well across the six shades I initially purchased (shown in the group shot): some arrived more crumbly and two arrived very smooth, densely and tightly packed. They brand recommends using these with a fingertip, but I was able to use brushes as well as fingertips to achieve very similar results.

Most of the shades were quite pigmented whether applied dry or wet, but wet application definitely intensified the vibrancy and shine of the finish. I found they applied a little better in practice (dry) than initially swatched, which might be due to applying to a smaller area and pressing/patting on without spreading across a larger area. They have a slightly thicker consistency, so I recommend using a patting/pressing motion to get them to adhere evenly and smoothly on the lid, but they did seem to "melt" (as described) as I worked with them on my skin and after a few minutes, so they had a very smooth sheen while worn.

I did get some fallout, especially with the shades that appeared more crumbly, and I had less fallout after I pressed the looser product down in the respective pot (effectively crushing everything together). They lasted between eight and nine hours on me before creasing faintly.

Frose

Tarte Frose Chrome Paint Shadow Pot ($22.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and much warmer, golden shimmer that gave it a highly reflective, metallic finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, whether applied dry or wet–the wet application yielded a slightly deeper base color. The consistency was soft, finely-milled, and mine arrived very loose with a “stopper” that was included outside of the actual pot (rather than inside as it was sold previously, which was less messy). I applied the eyeshadow by patting and pressing into place and that was enough to prevent fallout. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before creasing faintly.

Wild at Heart

Tarte Wild at Heart Chrome Paint Shadow Pot ($22.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a light, pinky-peach base with shimmer that shifted from pink to blue. It had opaque color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin when I pressed and patted it into place, as it was quite loose upon arrival. The texture was was soft, smooth, and almost cream-like once it was applied to my skin. It lasted nicely for eight and a half hours on me before creasing slightly.

There was a plastic stopper that was included outside of the pot, which pressed the product into place but the jar was quite filled so some product got pushed over the edge of the stopper. I would have preferred that they kept it inside like prior releases of this formula.

Now these are something to rave about! I think I may need Unleashed (because purple chrome!) and Wild At Heart the most, but wouldn’t mind getting all three!

Would you say that the texture of these is similar to the Armani Eyes to Kill potted shadows (discontinued now, I believe)? They look sort of similar in photos and the formula description sounds similar. I was a huge fan of those.

I bought Frose’ quite a while ago-when it came pre-tamped with the stopper. It is amazing how different they look in the pots. My Frose’ looks like your actual swatches, not nearly as deep/dark as this is showing in the pan. I really enjoy using this eyeshadow and have been thinking of getting one or two more shades, I’m glad you reviewed these!

The ones with the metallic rim on the lid seem to have the tamping plastic piece (better word, thank you!) in the box but not IN the jar. Only one of the shades in the new packaging actually arrived pressed, lol!

Oh, wow!
I really, really like all three. Unleashed is a must have, gorgeous purple. Wild at heart is lovely and interesting. Frose is super pretty.
I want them all, but it’ll have to wait. My low buy went into no buy after I had a flooding in my basement and even though the insurance company will pay I still have to pay rather a lot to have it fixed. Oh, well the eye shadows are permanent, and I don’t want to have a damp and in time probably smelly basement so for once I’ll have my priorities straight. 🙂

Beautiful swatches and review, as always, thank you. <3
It's wild to me how different things can look in the pan versus swatched. I would never pick up Unleashed by looking at it in the pan! I would go straight to Frose, and I'd be miserable.

Unleashed is calling my name but I have Frosé and all of the older more bronze-y tones pots and while lovely, I never reach for them.
